Woman in Fargo confrontation loses job

Share

Amber Hensley was sacked from her job after a viral video (below) showed her going on a rant against three Somali women in Fargo, North Dakota, on July 25.

"I'm an American. I'm an American and you're not", Hensley responds, later adding, "We're going to kill all of you, we're going to kill every one of you f--ing Muslims". Two days before, she was yelling at the sisters, "We're going to kill all ya ... I'm an American, you're not".

"Why are you in our country anyway?"

Corrects that woman shown threatening the Muslim women in the video is from North Dakota, not Minnesota.

Leyla Hassan, one of the young women in the vehicle, told local North Dakota news station KVVR that Hensley beckoned her to "fix the parking". But she said she couldn't because Hensley got so close she anxious she'd run over the woman's toes.

She said harassment like this is common in Fargo, N.D., where they live.

"I wanted everyone to see what happens to us every day", Hassan told the Forum News Service.

Incidents of Islamophobic hate crimes are reportedly on the rise in the United States, where a law banning immigration from six Muslim-majority countries was recently reinstated.

Sarah Hassan said she started recording when she realized they needed evidence of the woman's "unacceptable" behavior.

"Police won't care", Hensley said on camera.

The women called the police, but Hensley left the scene before cops arrived.

The footage was initially posted on Snapchat before the group sent it to Hukun Dabar, director of the Afro American Development Association, who uploaded it to Facebook where it went viral.

"I'm going to her place of work tomorrow".

"She said, 'Fuck Jesus!' and I lost it!" said Hensley. She said she showed the video to the police, but KVRR reports that no charges have been filed.

Now that the dust has settled, somewhat, Hensley is apologizing for her actions that day.

"I would first like to apologize for the awful things I said to the two ladies at Walmart".

Hensley who is an accountant has now posted an apology on Facebook: "It was not a Christian like thing to do AT ALL and wish I could take it back".

Chief David Todd wrote: 'I want to put before you an example of what can be accomplished even though mistakes were made and unfortunate words were said.

Thursday saw the women in the altercation come together in unity over their heated moment.

The woman reportedly was upset that the three Somali women parked so close to her that she couldn't get in.

Hensley's employer has also issued its own statement after the company was overwhelmed by calls and emails.

She later issued an apology to three women and added "there are absolutely no excuses".

"I am in tears with regret and will take any form of punishment deemed fit", Hensley said.
